    Shopping for the Rich and Famous

    by kahnjetta Written Oct 2, 2014

    Rodeo Drive is located in Beverly Hills. You will find some of the best high end stores on this block. From Channel, Gucci, and my favorite Louis Vuitton, fun to look but of course to expensive for my budget. So when you are in Los Angeles or if you live here and have a friend visiting, its a fun day to explore how the other half lives.

    Many Changes Here Too

    This is one of my favorite places to go to while in Los Angeles. The time I've spent here has mostly been to window shop and to have a meal.

    Some people see this as a "tourist trap" which seems funny to me because this is not a place for "tourists." This is a place for the rich and famous. Of course, poor people like me can enjoy the quality and ambiance and the price of a meal is affordable.

    Café Rodeo was one of my favorite places to have a drink, lunch or dinner. It was located at the Luxe Rodeo Hotel. However, it seems that Café Rodeo has closed and "On Rodeo Bistro & Lounge" has opened in it's place.

    Rodeo Drive is a charming street, parts of has an old European feel, especially the newer addition which is a walking street off Dayton Way and Rodeo Drive. I didn't see Giorgio's this time but Chanel and Cartier's are still there along with many other impressive names. Many of these stores, though open during the day to the public, are often times opened privately by appointment for those who want a bit of privacy.

    Why?

    by leics Written Aug 8, 2013

    I was in Rodeo Drive because I took a tour, and the tour left us to wander around for about 20 minutes.

    It's a posh shopping street with posh shops (most of which...as far as I could tell.. have branches elsewhere, including in Europe). So why go there? I assume it's for star-spotting and location-spotting purposes and neither of those things have any appeal for me.

    As it was early on a Sunday morning, I quite enjoyed wandering the almost-deserted area. I wasn't looking at the shops..not interested..but at the architecture and the window-displays. O...and at the occasional Ferrari or Lamborghini (not quite sure which they were) parked at the side of the road or whizzing up and down it. :-)

    From that point of view it was quite interesting and wandering certainly provided me with an insight into another culture entirely.

    Go there by all means...and if you're on a tour you won't have any choice...but, for me, it was just a street of the type of posh shops which I could see in many, many other cities

    Well, it was Sunday when I visited..... Rodeo Drive Hanging baskets and mock-old architecture This is how you display fashion. Obviously. A nice twiddly bit.

    2 Rodeo Drive (Beverly Hills)

    by Erin74 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 Rodeo is a scenic shopping and dining area in Beverly Hills. It's a block-long strip of shops that includes Tiffany & Co, Versace, Badgley Mischka, Jose Eber and restaurants inlcuding McCormick & Schmick's.

    At the south end of 2 Rodeo is a lovely water fountain and steps that provide a great photo op and a view of the Regent Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Walk up the stairs and down along the little pathway that meanders past various shops. This is a great place to window shop and take some pictures.

    If you're hungry, McCormick & Schmick's serves delicious seafood on their outdoor patio or inside in their cozy dining room. You can also see sporting events on the small TVs in their bar.

    You can park directly under 2 Rodeo. It's free for 2 hours (although you will want to tip the valet). From here, you can walk to all of the sights in the area.

    Rodeo Drive

    by apbeaches Written Jul 16, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The stretch of shops and boutiques on Rodeo Drive is only three blocks long. It begins at Wilshire Boulevard on the south, and runs north to Santa Monica Boulevard, where the commercial section of the street gives way to an affluent residential neighborhood. But those three short blocks constitute the most famous shopping district in America, and probably the most expensive three blocks of shops in the world.

  • Look But Don't Touch

    by grantravel Updated Sep 8, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As part of our short bus tour of Hollywood was the last stop-off at Rodeo Drive. We had about 20 minutes to have a look around. Not much I know, but its not as if you could really buy anything there. I remember the tour guide saying, "you cannot ask the stores how much anything costs, because if you have to ask you can't afford it". We made sure we went and had a quick look at the hotel where the movie "Pretty Woman" was filmed, and checked out their 5 star toilets ;)

    The shopping street of the rich and the famous

    by WanderingFinn Written Feb 17, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The famous Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills is famous for its boutiques, of which some don't even let you in if you are not dressed properly. Also, you don't ask for prices when you enter the boutique and get interested in something.

    These shops and boutiques are for those who do not have to ask for prices. Many celebrities do their shopping here.

    The Rodeo Drive - for the rich and famous If you shop here - dress well, don't ask prices!

    Rodeo Drive - Unique Southern California attitude.

    by Jerelis Updated Sep 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The historic timeline of Rodeo Drive starts in the early 1900's when the Rodeo Land and Water Company begins to develop a large tract of land in Beverly Hills. A real boost of attracting celebrities to Rodeo Drive happened when the Brown Derby Restaurant opened its doors in 1938. Right now you'll find a lot of exclusive shops like Tommy Hilfinger, Hugo Boss, Chanel, Cartier, Gucci, etc.

    To be honest, we didn't stay too long at Rodeo Drive. We passed it when we left Beverly Hills. Still we liked it. Why did we like it? Well, maybe it was the nice sunshine or the notion that at any moment we might just brush shoulders with a famous celebrity. Anyway, Rodeo Drive is renowned as the most American of streets with a uniquely Southern California attitude.

    Rodeo Drive - "Cure for boredom!"

    by Jerelis Updated Sep 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Taking a walk down Rodeo Drive immediately conjures up images of Rome's Via Conditti, Paris' Faubourg Saint Honore, London's New Bond Street and even New York's Madison Avenue. The street definately has an international flair, but comparison stops there.

    The New York Times has called Rodeo "The world's most prestigious" shopping street. To the late Andy Warhol Rodeo was "like a giant butter scotch sundae". Others called it "the ultimate cure for boredom".

    Where the Stars Shop!

    by tere1 Written Sep 12, 2006

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Rodeo Drive is situated in the Beverly Hills area and it's famous for its top notch shopping. It's an area of about trhee blocks with boutiques and shops of the best lables and brands .

    Here you can find Armani, Gucci, Canel, Valentino, Cartier, Tiffany among many otheres. But I also found that there are some shops and boutiques not so expensive and more affordable. There was even a Levi's store which was selling items with huge discounts.

    It's here that celebrities shop and it was also here that part of the movie "Pretty woman" with Julia Roberts was filmed.

    Rodeo Drive again

    by shivan Written Sep 27, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This place is not actually the hell I may have painted in my previous tips. Sorry for having given this idea.
    Rodeo Drive is a pleasant place where to have a walk in peace, fearing nothing but spending a lot of money as soon as you enter a shop in there.
    Good for us was that many of the shops were the same we find every day in Rome and so we were not so tempted to go in.

    Rodeo Drive, how actually it is

    by shivan Updated Sep 27, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This picture shows how Rodeo Drive actually is.
    This street is actually a short, not so crowded, and absolutely "common" road.
    A brilliant example on how media can influence your choices when deciding where to go or what to do visiting a place like this.
    Los Angeles, not differently from many other places I'm talking about in my USA pages, occupies a relevant place in our TV-addicted-guys memories.
